with japan ended i was on a cruise ship bound for germany and was ordered to go down into the hold of the ship from gambling. i had no idea there were any bikes on the step, this went on until i became a security policeman in germany and was called up, a shootout for black american soldiers partly because there were many german girls who love to date black soldiers and there were many white soldiers in an outbreak here. in germany we spent a year, wasn't experienced the first time and introduced me to a racial issue. and there was also the holocaust of course. and some many survivors and protected them going into the streets. summery called truckload after truckload of survivors. i was opened up to a lot of new things. and to go to college i was very much interested in the racial issue even though i failed to take part in the actable civil rights movement, i read their wasn't anything, when i was in graduate school or hovered, very distinguished historian from berkeley, and teach at harvard and the fire department and we became good things -- good friends. he was about to publish a

conference with the chancellor of germany. big news, big news for everyone except fox. they cut away from it. watch. >> all right, we were waiting for others to ask questions. we know that the next question coming up is from a german reporter. we are not anticipating that would be about the situation with benghazi, which is breaking news since the president has been talking really. so really, if in fact, somebody throws him a question on this topic, we'll go back to that joint news conference. >> gee wiz. amazing. >> there's literally only one thing to talk about, benghazi. >> first of all, i was at that news conference today, reverend al. there was some very important stuff that came out of there about ukraine, about the possibility of new sanctions. and i thought very, very important angela merkel herself raised the issue of nsa and how they've got some real differences with the united states in how we protect the rights of individual citizens while fighting terrorism. very important stuff. but fox news was upset because president obama did not adopt the fox news agenda and no reporter ask

the divide between the u.s. and germany on nsa surveillance. president obama also faced a question from the international press about tuesday's botched oklahoma execution. on ukraine both leaders seemed amenable to the possibility of further sanctions that take direct aim at key sectors of the russian economy. sanction that is could potentially damage a sluggish european economy as well. president obama said it all depends on how deeply russia interferes with ukraine in the lead-up to its elections later this month. >> if, in fact, we see the disruptions and the destabilization continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th, we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanctions. >> for her part chancellor merkel told the associated press -- the assembled press that, "the post-war order has been put into question by the actions of russia and vladimir putinin." it comes as ukraine has attempted to take back one key city, leaving at least two dead in the fighting and separatists have downed at least two ukrainian helicopters. a point the presiden

. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including former german chancellor, who is making a lot of money helping natural gas flow from russia to germany. no surprise. angela merkel is under pressure. host: one of the fundamental flaws of sanctions as a foreign-policy tool? guest: it is limited and a blunt instrument but also there is no other choice. not a lot of other alternatives. politics are flawed, too. germany is russia's's largest trading partner in the eu. they have more economic interest in the u.s. and its owing to be hard to pressure russia and a major way unless the europeans are willing to play. host: let me share what jack lew told members of congress when it came to sanctions and at russia and the wealthy individuals linked to president putin. [video clip] >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy, it is misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the period of time since russia went into crimea and since we have imposed sanctions. there has been a substantial deterioration in rush's already weak economy. we see and
. both the u.s. and germany have tried to apply pressure on russia to try to de-escalate the crisis in ukraine, the u.s. taking the lead on sanctions, while chancellor merkel has tried to use her closer relationship with russian president vladimir putin to resolve the crisis, but it's not clear whether those closer ties are helping. in a phone conversation that the two leaders had on thursday, putin told merkel that he wants to see ukrainian troops pull out of the southeastern part of their own country. white house press secretary jay carney called that suggestion preposterous. now, the white house expects both leaders, both president obama and angela merkel, to talk about another round of sanctions against russia. that next round would likely be targeted at russia's economy, key sectors of the russian economy, such as its banking and energy sectors, but that would hurt the german economy as well. so, expect that question to come up at a news conference with president obama and chancellor merkel later today. also, one other big question to expect would be about those revelations tha

that killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. general lovell was in germany awaiting orders to strike at the terrorists, orders that never came. >> what we did know quite early on is that this was a hostile action. this was no demonstration gone terribly awry. to the point of what happened, the facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack. the afri-con j 2 was focused on attribution. the attacks became attributable very soon after the event. >> so that means the u.s. military, the cia on the ground in libya, and pretty much everyone else directly involved with the benghazi attack knew it was not a spontaneous demonstration within hours. yet, as we proved yesterday, the obama administration created a fiction that the attack was a reaction to an anti-muslim videotape. the cover was blown off that deception this week when a memo by white house advisor ben rhodes was released through the freedom of information act. the memo clearly says that ambassador susan rice was prepped to tell the world on television that a videotape incited the murders in benghazi. incredibly,

back to the history books and what things were like in germany before world world war with the sense of them being a rising power but with the grievance that they would soon be into position to correct in some way. now that doesn't mean conflict is inevitable but the decisions over the maritime disputes you felt the chance of to improve. >> the trip i took in march was my 9th trip there. and it was a great quote that i would like to point out from a debate from two people of letters. i will not go into their names. they were arguing about china and one was living there for a couple years and there other returned. and the guy who had not said the guy who lived there was too close to china and the guy responded surely there is a medium between never -- living in china versus never being there at all. that guy had never been there at all. i can tell you every time i go i learn how much i don't know and how much is changing in china. i would be concerned about china's economic rise if it doesn't happen. and that is because the imperative i think from the comm commonnist party is if they

borrowing. in europe, germany has a growth rate of 8%, turkey has a growth rate of 4%. this is all good for all to see. it is because people appreciate that they have voted 45.5% in favor of this government. otherwise, why would they keep a corrupt government in place? i'll come to the economy in a moment. let's stay with this for a second. the question was raised that you look back at the same people who were there prosecuting the military and you seem to agree with it at the time. but then when they came after you, you looked back at what they did to the military and said maybe that was not good. have you changed your mind about the legitimacy of the prosecution against the military? >> let me tell you one thing. we are always against wrongdoing. when the chief of general staff was arrested, i made some statements then. if you go back and look at those statements, you will see that i have said that i did not think it right for him to be kept in custody and be prosecuted in this way, and i also said at the time that it was not these courts but that he should have been subject to the ju

for immigration. this is where so many of the steamship lines ended, so if you were coming from germany or ireland or odessa or sicily or naples or wherever all through the 19th century, you would quite likely have arrived in new york or maybe baltimore, but new york had a majority of people coming there. even today, people from europe and from the third world stream into new york. it's the historic gateway of immigration and of the first steps of americanization. c-span: now if you go back and study the 13 original colonies and the makeup of the people, what would it have been like? >> guest: well, you would find that although there have always been people in the united states and what became the united states who weren't white english protestants -- by the way, anglo saxon just means english in terms of this discussion. i don't like the phrase anglo saxon. i think it's vague but it's what were stuck with in the acronym. but, i'll use it so long as we understand what i mean by it is white english protestant. c-span: when i read this, i circled a number of things including anglo saxon which you de
